Subject: Derived files
Don't bother with the worthless files that the Archive derives; they don't know how to do it correctly.
Download the mpeg2 file or the Cinepack (avi) file.
Subject: Streaming audio badly out of sync
Don't bother, unless you don't mind going nuts trying to figure out who's saying what.
Subject: Quick-paced B Movie
Fast-paced, snappy dialog and an interesting storyline made this film worth a "listen."
Currently, there seems to be a small problem with two of the available downloads. The audio is about 5 seconds ahead of sync with the video portions of the Ogg and 512Kb MPEG4 files.
Beyond that, it's a reasonably good movie.

3.25 stars overall. Not bad.
Subject: Who Done It?
While it was packed with cliché plot devices, this fast paced 'old house' mystery kept my attention for all 60 minutes. I like these old mysteries. Typical setup: Rich head of household disappears and best detective around is called in to solve it, then the mystery deepens. The directing was a bit off at times or maybe it was the editing or both, but the acting was Ok. The leads, James Dunn and Joan Woodbury, work well together. I always enjoy seeing J. Farrell MacDonald working; he plays the cop in this.
I downloaded the 863MB MPEG2 file. It's source had seen better days. Images seemed to vibrate now and then, which was annoying. Still, it wasn't too hard on the eyes. Some dialog was garbled. There were dropouts, too, but they didn't affect dialog.
